Sujihiki Integral 275mm 1.2519 Wrought Iron Ni Foil Clad

$863.00

This product is unavailable

This Sujihiki 275mm is forged in premium 1.2519 reactive carbon steel. The 63-64 HRC blade takes a razor-sharp edge and 1.2519 has a great reputation for edge retention. The blade has a beautiful weight to it and is balanced perfectly, take the blade in a pinch grip and you will find your fingers sit comfortably directly over the heel. At a fraction over 40mm this Sujihiki gives plenty of knuckle clearance and the integral forged handle makes for a super comfortable cutting experience.

Tobias Heldqvist is a very thoughtful bladesmith and it shows in his blade geometry. Coming out of the integral handle the blade is thick for a sujihiki, but within a few millimetres the blade tapers down to less than 2mm and continues to tapper down to around 1.6mm before hitting the needle like tip.

The Knife is finished with a bespoke octagonal walnut integral handle. Overall, a very beautiful knife, perfect fit and finish, very classy work from one of our favourite bladesmiths.

Product Care:

Cleaning: Clean by hand with warm water. Avoid wetting the handle when possible. 

Sharpening: We advise using whetstones to sharpen your knives and a honing rod or steel to maintain the burr between sharpening sessions. 

Reactive Steels: Reactive steels like Aogami Super, Apex Ultra or one of the many premium reactive German and Swedish steels are susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. In this case we advise that you keep the knife dry between uses and when storing the knife for longer periods wiping the knife blade with Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil is a wise choice. This will not stop a patina forming on the blade, but it will stop rust. A patina can be a beautiful personal feature on your knife and helps to stop rust forming. So, dry your knife regularly between uses, store in a dry place and apply some Tsubaki oil from time to time when storing for long periods.

Handle Care: If you have a knife with a non-stabilised wooden handle, you can apply Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil to your handle from time to time. Food safe wax can be applied to both stabilised and no-stabilised wooden handles. Never apply hot wax or oil as you risk warping or damaging the handle.
